Animoji for Android: It’s already there in Google Allo

Apple just finished their iPhone 8 launch event, and we gotta say it was incredible, gorgeous, best ever ..erm nah! just okay event. But seriously, that Animoji thing from the iPhone X, it looks incredibly fun and super cute. We gotta have it on Android.

It’s not that Android is far, we have some cool apps on the Play Store which lets users share a variety animated emojis that are fun. But Animoji is different. For those who were busy enough to avoid watching the live event, here about Animogy from us.

Apple announced iPhone X with an advanced imaging system on front of the device. The system was built to enable fast and secure Face unlock feature called Face ID for iPhone X since there’s no home button/fingerprint scanner on the device as it has gone all screen on the front now. This new advanced imaging system on front of iPhone X is able to read your face like never before (on a phone), and the Animogy feature takes advantage of this tech to convert your facial expressions into animated emojis. And they look pretty sweet.

Now coming back to our point for this post — Animoji for Android, we believe it should be possible for app developers to bring a app for Android which could do similar stuff as Animogy on iPhone X does. Of course, it won’t be as accurate as on iPhone, but it’ll be something cool.

Also, the Google Allo app on Android devices already have animated emojis support, and it is cute too. Although, they are predefined and won’t animate according to your facial expressions like Animoji on iPhone X does, but it’s something better.
